Last night, EISD hosted its annual Employee Appreciation Banquet. The Banquet was held at the First Baptist Church in Eustace. Following a barbeque dinner catered by Danny’s Barbeque from Athens, several employees were recognized for their service to EISD. These employees received a service pin and a $15 gift card from Applebee’s.
In addition, the following employees are retiring at the end of the 2015-2016 school year. They received a special wooden school bell with their name and years of service to EISD.
Stephanie O’Connor – 3 years in Eustace, 10 years in education
Judi Versace – 15 years in Eustace, 50 years in education
Lisa Bynum – 18 years in Eustace, 25 years in education
Cheryl Cooper – 18 years in Eustace, 30 years in education
Mary Bell – 27 years in Eustace, 27 years in education
Faye Barnett – 29 years in Eustace, 29 years in education
Wanda Andrews – 30 years in Eustace, 33 years in education
Jan Walker – 31 years in Eustace, 31 years in education
Combined, these staff members have served 171 years in Eustace and a total of 235 years in education!!
Following these recognitions, over 100 door prizes were awarded to those in attendance. I would like to thank everyone who donated a prize for their contributions. I will be publishing another blog later today that lists all the sponsors.
I want to extend a thank you to all of our employees for all the things that you do everyday to make sure our students receive a “World-Class Education!”
A special thank you to Brother Paul McKinney, pastor at the First Baptist Church, for allowing us to use their great facilities!
